The good news is that once we do lick this virus, the economy will be right back.

Buy the dips people. I'm up 200% in some of my holdings. Look at 3 year price history and anticipate prices going up to that pre-virus average. PLAY has performed well for me. Bought it 3 days ago.

Sorry Op. stay strong! Please know that this will pass.

There’s economic hotlines that can help provide relief, I would also reach out to your community online for assistance specifically in your area. And interim work for a company needing extra assistance now is better than no work, while you’re getting back on your feet/waiting for the dust to settle. You can also borrow really cheap Rn, but if you already have debt be sure and call the debt companies and let them know your situation- many are furloughing or pausing payments and interest for up to 6 months. You can also call, tell them your scenario and see if they’re willing to settle - if the economy tanks and you have no income their immediate panic is to collect what they can right now vs none at all; sometimes can settle for pennies on the dollar.

Local churches might also do what they can to assist

COVID is an easy explanation for lack of employment. Be sure to try the exit opportunities bowl. Update your LinkedIn with keywords.

TELUS culture is one of the strongest aspects of Telus.

Telus is one of the most friendly and encouraging companies to work for. Telus doesn't layoff unless it has too (Telus will place you elsewhere instead). Telus is one of those workplaces that people stay for decades and refer their families and friends. You will not be disappointed at Telus if positive work environment is important to you.
